Trump Derails 1st Presidential Debate With Biden

Domenico Montenaro, writing for NPR:

Trump doesn’t play by anyone’s rules, even those he’s agreed to beforehand. He’s prided himself on that. But even by his standards, what Trump did Tuesday night crossed many lines.

More than 200,000 Americans are dead from the coronavirus pandemic. And instead of a serious debate about the direction of the country, Trump sent it off the rails.

If at this point you don’t know how to treat this election, I have questions. I know many who have stated they’ll vote third party or will just abstain this time around, but neither of those are useful options. Trump needs to lose in a landslide and the only way this happens is if Americans turn out in huge numbers and vote for Biden. There’s no room to repeat the mistakes of 2016.
